I came back to Jimmy's after 10 years away and really looked forward to it. However, the restauarant was quiet, a lot of the dishes on the menu were not available (steak and kidney pie, prawns, roast beef), and overall the food was average. We...More

Not much left of the British Empire in Hong Kong. But Jimmy's Kitchen is a reminder of the way things were. Walk down a few stairs and step back in time. It looks like a British restaurant and that's that it is. Dark wood and...More

Step back in time, where baked Alaska runs wild. Where chicken Kiev rubs shoulders with beef stroganoff. Good old-fashioned service with a smile. Loved it. Only the Angel Delight is missing.

Classic vintage expat cuisine. I've been there many times over the last 15 years. Consistently good with great service. It's a perfect place for a business lunch.

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial

Not sure but as Jimmy's kitchen is in Central, one of the more expensive districts, I would expect the roast potatoes to come with the meal but not the vegetables. It would be best to ask the waiter - if it does not state on... More
